Renamed, registered and widely recognised, Child Awareness Project is now an award-winning NGO based in Chennai. Our mission is #ChildProofingTheWorld - making the world a safer and better place for children.

About this Campaign

Soft Skills are the essential non-academic aspect of education that help increase employability. Students from economically underprivileged backgrounds are often deprived of opportunities to gain these skills.

This gives rise to problems such as:

  • Some students write well, but they are not able to express themselves orally.
  • Some speak fluently, but cannot write without grammatical errors.
  • Some are comfortable speaking among themselves in a small group, but are not comfortable facing the audience.
  • Some having problems with their body language and use inappropriate with others, some find it difficult to maintain eye contact.
  • Some are always misunderstood.

Through our campaign, we plan to equip students from less privileged socioeconomic strata with soft skills. They will be trained by professionally-trained instructors and interactive sessions.
